You are so lucky that you got to fly with Georgia - she truly is one of the best and the only female commercial hot air balloon pilot in Victoria. Sunrise from a hot air balloon is like nothing else and I am so glad you got to experience this with us. warmest, Danielle and the GBA team

Amazing professional experience
May 2021
The professionalism of Global Ballooning is unparalleled. We felt comfortable and safe with our pilot Sam; as did our 12 year old son. The experience was amazing; and the sunrise magnificent. The experience was rounded off by a tasty breakfast at Balgownie Estate and the handing out of "Certificates of Courage"

Amazing start of the day among the clouds
May 2021 • Family
Woke up at 3am in a cold 4 degrees celcius, left home at 4am to meeting point at Yarra Glen at about 5.30am, @globalballooningaustralia took flight at about 7am producing about an hour of awesomeness.

We were fortunate to have a smaller basket which meant it was a private group accompanied by super friendly and fun pilot Georgia (Scarlet on the ground, standing by for our go-by-ear-landing site).

The lift to 2000ft was smoothly executed, a little bit of rough landing in the end (expected and thrilling).

We saw the city skyline, wild kangaroos, a fast running rabbit, Yarra River that runs through the city, Sugarloaf Reservoir that supplies 30% of our water.

Ended the hot air ballooning experience with a beautiful Champagne breakfast at Balgownie Estate as part of the package.


This is how my wife surprised me for our 20th wedding anniversary, “ascended to the sky”. 😘


Watching TV, reading reviews, they are just different with experience it first hand. Everyone should try it at least once. 👍

Wow what a great and detailed review - thank you! And what a lovely surprise gift from your wife :) We are so glad that you enjoyed your special day, and for the shout out to Georgia and Scarlett ( our dynamic duo who also happen to be 2 of the few female hot air balloon pilots in Australia). We would love to see you again to experience one of our other fabulous destinations - Melbourne or Mansfield. You now qualify as a high flyer and can receive a 15% discount kind regards, Danielle and the GBA team

Absolute perfection in the Yarra Valley
May 2021 • Couples
We had an incredible morning gently floating above the Yarra Valley with Georgia our pilot who was friendly, professional, and excellent company. Although we were nervous about heights beforehand, this turned out to be not an issue at all. A beautiful sunrise, easy set up and pack up thanks to Scarlett on ground crew. We were celebrating a milestone birthday and the staff went out of their way to help make this experience magical. Hiring a balloon just for the two of us was definitely the way to go and worth every penny! Highly recommended!

What a way to spend a milestone birthday! I will definitely pass on your feedback to Georgia and Scarlett - such a winning combination! And two of the few female hot air balloon pilots. It's amazing how that fear of heights completely dissipates once you are floating above in the balloon. So glad to hear that you had an awesome experience in your exclusive balloon. warm regards, Danielle and the GBA team

Floating on air
May 2021 • Couples
The team at Global Ballooning were “a well oiled machine” and the whole experience was fantastic from start to finish.
As first time fliers, my wife and I were very excited upon arrival and we were not disappointed.
Our pilot, Ron, and the rest of the crew obviously love what they do and it shows.
The ride it self is just like floating on air and following the breeze, so quiet with exception to the occasional blast from the burners.
The valley was stunning at that time of the morning and the breakfast that followed was the icing on the cake!!
Thanks Global, well recommended by us and we will be back
